Michelle Phan's 'Easy Ways to Use Liquid Liner'

A few weeks ago, the lovely Kate Young stopped by to teach us the 'KY Style' eye, and while many of you loved the video, we found that some of you were still curious about how to achieve the look. If that's the case, look no further than Michelle Phan, the YouTube “how-to' sensation, for a play-by-play on mastering liquid eyeliner. She has the most subscribed-to YouTube beauty channel, with almost 3.7 million followers (outnumbering the NBA, Katy Perry, and Adele, but falling just short of Justin Bieber...hey, you can't win 'em all) and over 700 million views (DAMN, GURL!). She may not be for everyone—much more 'your friend from school' than the über-connected Lisa Eldridge—but there's no denying her technical wizardry. And while the three liner variations she teaches us are not exactly pushing the envelope editorially, Phan gives us a great lesson on the basics of liquid application. We are big fans of the cat eye in any incarnation, but figure it can't hurt to brush up on the basics before you evolve the style to fit your personality.
